“I have known Peter who has acted for both myself, and my son, on three separate occasion, for 10 years.
He is a man of integrity, honesty and openness who always dealt with our complicated legal disputes in a very thorough manner. Ready at all times to refer to the appropriate Barrister should he feel a more learned and specialised opinion be beneficial. He is friendly, very approachable and easy to talk with on a level at which his clients are comfortable.
I have no hesitation in recommending this very experienced senior lawyer.”
